Mulch comes in all types – from store-bought bark and pine straw, to grass clippings and compost. Whichever kind of mulch you prefer, this is a great way to “tuck your plants in” for the winter.

On lawns, mulch is more than just returning value to the lawn. It’s a grown stimulant, like cutting the lawn. Lawns need to be pampered to a degree, and the added stimulus of mulching keeps them healthy.


When added to gardens as top dressing, it’s watered in. This stimulates soil chemistry, and improves soil biota. It even attracts earthworms and other useful garden inhabitants. Some of the world’s favorite flowers, notably roses, thrive on mulch. They take it up like kids with straws drinking sodas. Your mulch is your garden’s best friend. It maintains your garden and keeps it looking great. Take care of your garden, and it will take care of your home and grounds.
